IMO, happy wife = happy life just means don't sweat the small stuff. If something really matters to the other person, compromising will make her/him happy. If he/she is happy, then your life together is happy. It's not unfair, so long as its reciprocal.

The two people who I see use this phrase have VERY strained marriages. Granted, they are still rather young and have fairly young marriages, but whatever.

But different strokes for different folks, I suppose.

The highlighted is how I (and DH) treat marriage. We both were older (30 & 35 respectively) when we got married, so we didn't have to find ourselves, as it were. But we both are happy when the other is happy, so it's a two way street for us.

No, I am the DW. My thread referred to my being a Tom Boy, in our earlier years.

And DH enjoyment of Motorcycles, Boating etc.

Maybe, I'll book a cruise for him!

By looking at it from the other side of the coin, an unhappy wife can make your life HELL!
You get to choose the life you live.
